Renowned Beckett interpreter Lisa Dwan introduces us to her work with Samuel Beckett, discussing her longstanding engagement with his oeuvre. Drawing on her performances and personal insights from working with Billie Whitelaw to Walter Asmus, Dwan traces a narrative through Beckett's intense poetic trajectory and the 'Beckettian’ aesthetic, examining what it costs those who seek to bring it to life.
